One of the most popular romantic heroes of Indian television industry, Karan Kundra, has now become a hot property in Bollywood, too. After trying his hand at Punjabi cinema, the handsome hunk is now gearing up for two Bollywood releases – Arjun Kapoor’s ‘Mubarakan’ and Vikram Bhatt’s ‘1921’.
This is the second time, after Horror Story (2013), when he has collaborated with Bhatt. He will be seen romancing Bollywood beauty Zareen Khan in the film.
‘1921’, which is being shot in various locations of United Kingdom, will tell a love story amidst a scare fest. Like ‘192o’, the film boasts of great music, a compelling story and goose-bump-arousing horror scenes.
Director Vikram Bhatt says his new movie “1921″ will set a new precedent as far as the horror genre in Bollywood is concerned.
“The point is to just not scare but to make the audience feel for the characters and to want them protected. 1921 is a film that goes beyond the genre. Why can’t the villain of a great love be a great evil,” Bhatt said of the film, in a statement.
“As of now we have finalised only Zareen, she is playing the female lead. We are looking for one male actor for the other role. I liked her in ‘Hate Story 3’ and I genuinely believe she is the most undervalued actress we have,” Bhatt added.
The film revolves around the lead cast dealing with their dark pasts and secrets to secure their present and future. It is about a struggle between life and death, and is based entirely in Britain. The film 1921, like 1920, will have a strong romantic and emotional premise between the lead pair.
“1920 films are set in a period time zone and they require a certain body type for actors. The body type, body language should be such that they look right in any era. Zareen, that way, is timeless. She is perfect for the role,” he concluded.
